White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership Studentships

The White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership (WR DTP) is a collaboration across the social sciences at the universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan. It is accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

The Department of Environment and Geography offers studentships with the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership.

They will give you access to:

  • a wealth of supervisory expertise across the social sciences
  • a wide range of training opportunities, particularly focused on maximising the social and economic benefits of your research
  • a network of students and researchers studying in your discipline across Yorkshire
  • a network of interdisciplinary contacts and the opportunity to develop expertise working across disciplines

Subject to ESRC eligibility criteria, the scholarships cover tuition fees and a grant (stipend) to help towards living expenses. All awards are available for study part-time.

These scholarships are available on a 1+3 (Masters + PhD) or a +3 (PhD only) basis.
